Our prediction for this Scottish League Cup match:
High-flying Rangers will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on St. Mirren in the Scotland League Cup quarter-finals. Steven Gerrard’s troops are enjoying a season to remember, but they do not want to stop now. The Gers aim to win everything in the 2020/21 season, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Saints.
Filip Helander, who has recovered from coronavirus, is likely to return to the starting XI for the visitors, with South Africa midfielder Bongani Zungu pushing for a start as well. Even though Gerrard is likely to mix the squad, away win should be considered as the Gers are brimming with confidence ahead of Wednesday’s clash. St. Mirren boss Jim Goodwin has no selection worries ahead of the visit of Rangers, but his men do not seem to be capable of matching the Premiership leaders.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
Highlighted Team (Rangers):
Glasgow Rangers are one of the two synonyms for Scottish Football. Glasgow Rangers were founded back in 1872 and they have been playing an important role in the Scottish top flight ever since. The Gers won their 54th Scottish Premier League title in the 2010/2011 season, but winning of European Cup Winners’ Cup trophy in 1972 is considered the club’s biggest success.
Glasgow Rangers defeated Dynamo Moscow in the final of the competition, with the likes of Stein and Johnston (two goals) scoring for the Scottish side. Celtic are considered the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two teams meet in the Old Firm derby. The likes of Paul Gascoigne, David Weir, Stefan Klos, Chris Boyd, Ian Durrant and Kenny Miller are some of Rangers’ former notable players.
It has to be noted that the Gers welcome their rivals at Ibrox Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 50,817. Rangers’ support is largely drawn from the Protestant Unionist community.
